Back in February, I reviewed the Kiki de Montparnasse Garter Tank and, without going into too much detail, was left terribly disapointed. I still really like the casually sexy look of a garter tank though, and I’ve been looking for a suitable replacement ever since. Now I’ve found two. Etsy designer Clarebare makes an Organic Bamboo Jersey Garter Tank which is cuter than hell, sells for only $48, and comes […]

Haven’t done one a lust feature in awhile, but I am positively swooning over this adorable Batgirl bodysuit from Topshop. At only £20.00 ($40 US), it’s definitely an affordable splurge.   What do you think? I kind of want to pull a Lady Gaga and wear this to the club with fishnets, ankle booties, and a cat mask… but I won’t. ;-) P.S. Thanks to Pippa of Clashing Time for […]

Pssst…Don’t forget to enter the Kiss Me Deadly Lingerie Giveaway! I never understood the point of bodysuits until I ran out of shirts while backpacking across Europe and had to buy some. For me, the appeal of the bodysuit lies in its versatility. Bodysuits are great for layering, especially on chilly days… or you can make like Lady Gaga and wear them alone for a phenomenal statement piece. As with […]

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. Gilt brings you yet another lingerie sample sale, this time from indie label The Lake and Stars [Editor’s Note: As of January 2015, this site appears to be defunct]. I love The Lake and Stars because they bring an unstructured, unfussy, yet still entirely upscale design element to lingerie. Their pieces are the perfect antidote to “thong culture.” Several photos of available styles are posted […]
